Alliance for International Education – World Conference, 26th-28th February 2016, Bangkok

AIE World Conference_002

AIE World Conference_001

On January 26-28, NIST will host Alliance for International Education World Conference, with the theme of ‘Engaging with Difference’. AIE is an organization promoting intercultural understanding and collaboration and is connected to Bath University through the Board Members of Jeff Thompson and Mary Hayden, who have done a lot of research and published leading books in the field. AIE is hoping to generate a lot of interest in the local practitioners in the field of international education. It would be great to have your staff present some case studies, or lesson plans how they have ‘engaged with difference’ in their schools. The presentations are only about 20 minutes so this is a great way to get your work recognized!

We are also setting up a Local Committee, that will be involved in organizing the Conference. Most of the logistical work will be done by NIST, but we would like to welcome all your expertise in publicizing the event, and encouraging student involvement, e.g. in the form of IT help, presenting some projects etc. This will not take up a lot of extra time, but will ensure that you get to attend a fantastic Conference with lots of new learning and research! If you, or anyone in your staff, are interested in acting in the Local Committee, please advice them to contact me at mruokanen@nist.ac.th. Learn more about the Conference on AIE website.

Summer Camp (27 June – 8 August 2015)

D.T is also in the process of setting up a summer camp in Kanchanaburi, Thailand, where the children can enjoy all the fun expected of summer camp as well as an hour of literacy intervention by the OG tutors per day. The camp also aims to raise self-esteem and confidence in learning. We are hoping to have this ready for the upcoming summer break. More news to come…

Our mission is to increase awareness of dyslexia in South East Asia where 10 – 20% of all school populations will have students struggling to reach international standards in literacy and/or math. By increasing awareness and training we hope to develop the quality of teaching and intervention that these children receive, to reach their educational potential.

The strands are

The workshop that will be happening at Bangkok Patana on this occasion will focus upon Effective feedback in the learning process.

Cost: 2,000b (inclusive of transport to and from hotel, lunch, snack, refreshment and dinner on Friday evening)
Registration Dateline: Friday 10th April 2015
Contact Person: chris_r@harrowschool.ac.th

Term 3 Technology Integration JAWS

Topic: Technology Integration
Focus: Sharing models of good practice with a view to developing a working policy for Schools

The job-alike workshop was created as a format to allow group of like-minded professionals to create opportunities for curriculum-based CPD that relies on the skills and knowledge of the delegates themselves rather than relying on expensive key note speakers.
These workshops are an opportunity for you to share good practice and co-construct new knowledge with other FOBISIA teachers. This is a professional event. Registered participants are required to contribute to the agenda and to contribute to the presentations.

The impact of technology on education has been transformational in many of our Schools. With many seeking to fully leverage the potential of these tools there has arisen a need for teachers to explore how technology can be fully utilized to enhance and transform teaching and learning.
This JAWS will seek to work collaboratively to develop how Technology Integration actually looks in Schools. With a focus on the Why? How? And What?. Participants will work collaboratively to develop systems, strategies and policies which will work for their particular organisation.

Sign 4 Learning Workshop, 23rd April 2015, Bangkok Patana

Sign 4 Learning Workshop
Thursday 23rd April
Bangkok Patana

Please find here details of a CPD opportunity Sign 4 Learning Workshop which will take place at Bangkok Patana School on Thursday 23rd April.

Sign 4 Learning is a unique initiative that successfully uses signs taken from British Sign Language to increase targeted vocabulary in hearing children. The action of the sign, coupled with the spoken word is a powerful tool that helps children to remember new vocabulary and concepts effectively. Children learn best when they are actively engaged and with Sign 4 Learning they are not just hearing and saying new words, but doing them as well. Data from Sign 4 Learning shows significant and measurable progress towards the Early Learning Foundation Stage (EYFS) goals following an 8 week intervention using Sign 4 Stories and Sign 4 Feelings and Behaviour.

More information, including the research data is available from: http://www.sign4learning.co.uk
